Heavy Metal Halloween card
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Heavy Metal".

Halloween is what is on my mind at the moment. And this week in combination with Heavy Metal. Not the music (which I used to love), but the material. I've done this "look" a few times before, but every time with another technique to create the metal effect. For this card I've made a collage with all different sorts of washi tape, like in width and structure. I've painted them all black with Black Soot Distress Paint.


After the paint was dry, I added some extra texture by applying the kraft circles and droplets in a line. I've also painted these blacks. Then I started working with various Metallique and Opal Magic wax. If you've made a mistake or example by applying too much wax, you can easily cover it up by applying a bit of black paint and if it is dry, you do a new attempt with the wax. And the waxes smell so nice! Very sweet, love to work with those waxes on projects.




To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

LOOOOVELY! I am so in love with your halloween projects! As much as I do not lie to make them, the same much I love to see how you make them. The background you created absolutely rocks! It seems it was bandaged! Love all the deep black and how the waxes revealed all the details and uneven surfaces, just fabulous! Hugs, Marzena

Super imaginative and creative!! I can tell you are immersed in Halloween. I really like how you have added so much with the tree and gears around that face. I feel like I am looking into Tim Burton's "A Nightmare Before Christmas" COOL!! hugs, Maura
